The Most Expensive Home sold in Arizona last week - 5/24/16

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Zion Realty

The most expensive home that sold in Arizona last week could not be a more quintessential Arizona luxury property. Seamlessly tucked in to it's Sonoran surroundings, this multi-million dollar Scottsdale beauty in the neighborhood of Desert Mountain sold for $2.395 million dollars. No matter the time of day, the new owner will experience gorgeous views of the mountains and natural landscaping that encapsulates this area of the Valley. Making your way up to this property will give you the immediate feeling of exclusivity as you drive over the stone bridge and walk through the tall iron privacy gates in to the front courtyard. This home is also situated across from one of the famous Jack Nicolaus designed fairways at the private Desert Mountain Golf Club.

Desert Mountain Golf Club is consistently voted in to the top 10 courses in the entire Country year after year. Owning a home in this subdivision allows you the opportunity to apply for membership. If your application is approved to become a member you will also have access to the 42,000 square foot fitness and Spa facility named The Sonoran, a tennis complex with 9 USTA-certified courts, 15-miles of hiking and biking trails, and The Ranch which is where families and individuals can enjoy horseback rides and lessons. 

Getting back to the home itself, the interior of this luxury residence is everything you'd expect from an Arizona property of this caliber. Vaulted ceilings with exposed beams, imported stone floors, and rustic iron fixtures and finishes. Enjoy many nights entertaining at your wet bar adjacent to the wine room. The master bathroom shower is built for a king and queen to wash away the cares of the day at the same time. Take an evening stroll on the wrap-around balconies as you gaze upon the quiet atmosphere this home provides then cool off in the sparkling pool. Click on the picture below for the full MLS listing:

What a wonderful looking home, and it fits with the surroundings beautifully.  We were in your neck of the woods a couple of weeks ago, and I was amazed at the growth, and the traffic.  A

I think from the distance, the home would be secluded and blend into the desert landscaping. Talk about a home offering outstanding privacy!!!

S & N - It's very much a standard home for that area.

Debb - It can sometimes get repetitive and monotonous when you see home after home like this one but I do appreciate when they make it work with the surroundings. 

Alexandra - Yes, the traffic has grown in direct proportion to the freeways expanding. The wider the freeways, the more traffic seems to pile up on them. 

Patricia - I bet it's so quiet you could hear a golf swing from across the road.

Nina - If they would just move that house to Gilbert I'd be in!

John - I wish this was my listing but it's just a weekly blog series I write.

Belinda - Not only that but how many houses would you have to repeatedly sell to keep the lights on in a place like that!

Dick - I prefer a little more green grass than this one has but the low-maintenance desertscape has it's advantages.

George - We do have some pretty good custom home builders out here.

Chris - That shower is to die for! I love it too!

Hi Nicole -- this home seamlessly combines the indoor and outdoors with a lot of panache.   Very nice.

Michael - Panache sounds like a french pastry one would eat while on a gondola ride. But yes, the home was designed well.

Hi Nicole - the real remarkable statistic here are the taxes.  That would be a bargain for any house in Westchester County, NY.
